This is an interesting story.



Another part of the story is here:  https://www.dailysabah.com/turkey/2019/07/05/real-life-pooh-bear-and-family-steal-honey-from-turkish-beekeper-again.

Though I think the summary in the attached pic is the best. Ha!

It seems feeding the bears did not save or protect his hives, but did make for significant social media fodder.

Our bee hives are protected by electric wire. What strategy would you use?

Makes you want to try some Anzer honey, doesn't it!

Update....in a quick search I found a 250g jar for $140....never mind....doesn't sound all that interesting anymore :)
